Verizon Launches Text Spam Messaging Block

Verizon is rolling out a new system to combat spam. The company announced that it will launch enhancements to its commercial text messaging platform for its customers. This new platform will improve spam protections while enabling commercial providers of SMS text messages capacity at scale. The new text spam messaging block system is expected to debut in May 2019.

Previously, Verizon launched a special call filter for its customers to block robocalls. The STIR/SHAKEN caller ID technology is a part of Verizon’s network interconnections. Both tools will offer significant help for consumers who are consistently harassed by unwanted and annoying robocalls.

“Far too frequently, customers tell me they want relief from the bombardment of bothersome robocalls,” Ronan Dunne, president of Verizon’s consumer unit. “I’m confident that our new, free version of Call Filter and STIR/SHAKEN will put a big dent in the problem.”
